Michael Laudrup insists that Swansea City's priority is the Premier League for the 2013-14 campaign.

Swansea City manager Michael Laudrup has insisted that the club's main priority is the Premier League this season.

The Swans managed to secure ninth position in the table last season following their League Cup final victory at Wembley.

"Success for us this season will be to consolidate the team as a mid-table side in the Premier League," Sky Sports News quotes Laudrup as saying. "That would be fantastic to do so for a third consecutive year.

"We have the other competitions - the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League and we will just have to take them step by step. But the main thing for me is the Premier League."

Swansea will switch their focus to the Europa League this evening when they take on Malmo, hoping to add to their 4-0 scoreline from the first leg.
